NEW PLAYERS COMING?
Siege Perilous is being considered as the site for a retirement home for ancient aliens according to @!*#!, which loosely translates as “Intergalactic Society For People We No Longer Need.”
According to society spokesperson P*[email protected]#^-san, whose name loosely translates as “Wets Himself Joyously,” Siege is perfect. “Flat ground is the number one consideration. I mean, the old folk will still bump into things but falling from heights won’t be a problem. No children is a plus. And, of course, you can end it all just by going for a walk.”

THE BARD OF SIEGE MYSTERY
– By Kattasrophe
After a long day of fighting, I decided to go to Luna to rest for a moment. I found a book on the ground titled, “An Angry Young Man.”
Being the curious person I am, I opened the book and read:
“As I sit here looking, what do I see? I see an angry young man so starved for attention that he will say or do anything, right or wrong, to get it. I see those who feed that craving by making him the center of attention whenever he comes online. If others don’t start something, he will, to get all attention focused on him. Think about it.”
So, here I was, wondering who was this angry player? To be honest, the story made me think of Hand Of Doom, a PK who can be rude.
The Bard Of Siege has written other books and I wonder who the author is. Is it a mysterious alt character of someone we all know? Are they even from Siege Perilous?
This could just be someone expressing an opinion, Or it could be a keen observer telling another Siege story.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
– By Kattasrophe
Special Happy Birthday wishes for Dr D, whose birthday was this Wednesday the 21st, and to Kaisa, whose birthday will be on the 28th. May Siege be blessed by many more of your birthdays!

HOROSCOPE

GM HERDER
STARTS NEW GUILD
“I’m pretty sure I’m carrying out God’s will,” Hand of Doom explained, “All God’s creatures are flocking to me. I call the guild, M.I.N.E.”
“And that stands for?” I asked.
“Mine.”
“Um, OK, does your guild do anything? Events, maybe?”
“Sure. We do Slow Bar-B-Ques – that’s where I BBQ the slower critters. Then there’s Mating Season. I get to watch that.”
“OoKaay. Thanks & goodbye.”

HOUSE HIDER RANTS
ON BANK SITTERS
“Why do they even log on? They never go anywhere,” Moon Dock points out. “They’re afraid to leave the guard zone, so they never hunt or quest or explore.
They might just as well, you know, stay at home.”

Jack showed up late in Elk hunting camp this year. Asked why, he explained. “The wife didn’t want me to go. That made me sulk around the house feeling really low until my wife finally took notice.
She disappeared into the bedroom and waltzed out a few minutes later wearing the smallest negligee I’ve ever seen. Then she explained that she felt bad that I couldn’t go elk hunting and suggested that I tie her up and do anything I wanted.”

On cave wall prove to be early UO porn, according to noted archeologist, Tazar. “At first, we thought they were drawings of men attacking animals from behind with spears.”

ANCIENT ALIEN MAP
Recent discovery of an Ancient Alien Map of our sector of the Milky Way galaxy explains why we see fewer interplanetary visitors these days. The map shows our solar system “X’d” out in great red splotches along with a (recently translated)  warning, “Here there be Humans!”

ESO – THUMBS UP!
Elder Scrolls Online is a great quest game for those of us who love to “get stuff.” Gaining the next level and getting better gear becomes a manic quest of its own.

SIEGE CHANTY
We sail the seas of Perilous, to seek the Serpent Pillar,
The cannons are manned by the best of us, but a drunk is at the tiller.
We’re good men all, except the lass, and she’s good sooner than later.
We were having a ball & kickin’ ass when a ‘gator ate the navigator,
Then a gale came up and & the sails grew fat, and the Captain swore a pledge,
“I’ll save us lads, though the map be flat,” and we sailed right off the edge.

MONDAIN’S DIARY
(excerpted – How I got the Gem Of Immortality)
Minax and I lived on an island in those days. We were young and in love and very happy. While I busied myself with research, Minax spent her days doing Minax things to small furry creatures.
My research centered on the strange lights that flickered offshore. They were very bright at night and sometimes blood would swell up into the sea from beneath the dancing lights. Minax discovered this first.
I found her one moony night, keening and gibbering madly on the beach, naked and covered in the blood of the sea. Only by letting her suck my neck could I sooth her long enough to carry her to the water trough and bathe her.
I determined to discover for myself what lay in those depths. And, with the help of my trusty island pigmy assistant, Baldric, I build a diving chamber. We loaded it onto a small boat and we paddled one evening to the spot where the lights came out at night.
As those devilish lights began hopping about the surface, I crammed Baldric into the chamber and lowered him by rope into the bleeding sea. Although he lacked an air supply, Baldric had confidence in my ability to decipher his tugs on the rope. The mere frantic I ignored, but truly convulsive tugs meant his skin was turning blue and I would haul him up, much to his relief, for a wheezy debriefing.
Soon, a picture emerged of a sunken ship resting on the bottom. Before poor Baldric went into convulsions, I learned that the prowl of that ship was adorned by a human skull pouring blood from its eyes!
Well, that settled it. Baldric would have to go down one more time and get that skull. Of course, I was deeply concerned about Baldric. The way he was flopping around now, he could damage that skull while retrieving it. But we scientists must take risks so, shouting my instructions, I plopped him in one last time and prayed for the skull’s deliverance.
And he did it! Baldric got the skull! He never was quite right after this but he had always been a bit twitchy to begin with. And I had the skull!
I immediately saw the key clenched in the teeth of the skull. I pried the key loose and read the inscription on its side, “Pacemaker.” This key would unlock my dad’s pacemaker! I could get the Gem Of Immortality that powered Dad’s pacemaker! Oh! WoW! Was I excited!
And well, you know the rest of the story.

INCOGNITIVE INTERVIEW
– by Kattasrophe
Incognito is a returning player. He is a famous Siege player and pk. What makes him famous? His sarcastic, funny and truthful personality. Incognito had a short career as a news reporter ( a talented writer). And he is always up for shenanigans.
Warning: rumors of Incognito swooning injuries have been reported. One was about a PvP fight. A person named Guest posted on a thread, “His attack was mighty and he drove me off the bridge.” Prepare for more battles, shenanigans and sarcastic but hilarious comments.
Why is Incognito getting an interview? Because, as the report says, he is “Sheer awesomeness!”
“I deny everything, especially the parts that are true,” commented Incognito just as I turned in my report.

SWOONING INJURIES
– reported by Ru
Swooning injuries increase dramatically due to a person named Incognito.
“Half of the charm is the new born baby I’m holding. The other half is my sheer awesomeness.”
This reporter has to note that the baby is a true charm magnet.

KING’S AUCTION
On Saturday, 10th May at 3pm Eastern, the representatives of the King’s Council will be holding a shard public auction in order to give the people of Siege an opportunity to trade goods, promote shard interaction, and raise money for town treasuries.

The Perilous Inquirer
Vol 1, 42nd Issue
April 18, 2014

SIEGE vs PRODUCTION SHARDS
The Arguments for Both Sides:
KEEP SIEGE:
> A lot of players prefer non-consensual PvP.
> Non-consensual PvP attracts hard core gamers, which are the backbone of any successful game.
DUPLICATE RULE-SET SHARDS:
> The vast majority of UO players voted against non-consensual PvP, with their feet, a long time ago.
> The Siege Perilous shard is not worth the extra work & expense. Broadsword could cut costs by making only one publish whenever the game needs fixing or updating.
(Make Broadsword aware of *Your* view: email [email protected])

GMO ON UO!
Genetically modified food – defined by the World Health Organization as food that is produced by “organisms in which the genetic material has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally” has reached Siege shores. Sources divulge that candies given out last Halloween “ain’t natural” and cause character degeneration leading to listlessness, failure to log on (or out) and house sitting while hidden.

MOVIE REVIEW
“Inside Job” stars the aging crew of “Fantastic Voyage.” In this sequel, a miniaturized medical staff performs a colonoscopy. Filmed in 3D Smell-O-Rama, the movie overpowers viewers. Recommended for our scatological and chocophiliac readers, 3 Stars.

ESO GOES LIVE!
The Elder Scrolls Online goes live for the world tomorrow, April 4th. Many have already started with early play because they pre-purchased the game. Some played during BETA.
Why mention ESO in a UO paper? Because ESO is not in competition with UO, and it is a great break for anyone looking to play a quest or two in a different world. ESO is what Diablo 3 should have been. Awesome graphics, fun quests & great rewards.

GET ON THE GYPSY WAGON!
– By Lady Kattasrophe
There has been much talk on Stratics about the creation of the Gypsy Wagon. Two years ago, a person by the name of Old Gypsy on her Stratics account came up with the idea herself.
This is the starting of it. On June 17, 2012, Old Gypsy said, “OK, it is after 2:AM and the idea may be the result of sleep deprivation, but I’m posting it anyway. Since we already have Gypsy Wagons in UO (and they have a very small footprint) I think it would be a really nice optional addition for players. To keep it from being a problem for anyone, there would have to be restrictions.” This is only one paragraph of her remarkable idea that sparked the interest of over 3,000 and there is surely many more to come.
What does this have to do with anything? You might say we need to show people what we think of this amazing idea. There are already 214 messages on the page. Let’s show them how much we care!

Where is it?

OTG COMES TO UO
The Off-The-Grid movement sweeping the nation has come to UO. “People don’t want to be spied on and Siege is a natural for OTG’rs,” (pronounced ‘Ott-gerrs’) says spokes person, Survival Sue, “Because most people here already live hidden lifestyles, all we have to do is move ’em into the Colony.”
“Colony? Where’s that?”
“Sorry,” and from her covetous smile I suddenly recognized that I was really talking to Lladra. “The Colony is off limits to all but members.” She added sweetly, “Of course if you’re interested, and have your credit card handy….”

MOTHER LODE BOOT HILL
– by Governor Kattasrophe, Ace Reporter
“This is based on the famous Boot Hill in Tombstone, Arizona,” Norman Bates says as he points to a grave stone with the name, ‘Lester Moore’ on it. “I am the caretaker here. My name is Norman Bates. All of the residents are well cared for. Their plots get moved every week. I put fresh flowers on the grave if the relatives pay for it. I was reading about the real one and thought it would be nice if we had one of our own.”
I asked the question, “Do all Siege players have a grave?”
Norman Bates grinned, “We have a few spots open….”
The Mother Lode Boot Hill is located in Umbra, across the West Bridge.

UO IS NOT A GAME
UO is not a game, it is an interactive world.
– Richard Garriott
A game is where you explore exotic places, meet strange creatures, kill them, gather marvelous treasures, weapons & armor and max out your skills along the way. Then, if you wish, you can do all that all over again. Like UO, games have crafting, pets and guilds to help you stay the course.
UO has no course, no path to completion. You log in here and you begin to build an online life. You create your own home that in some way helps to express who you are. Your name appears on items you craft and so your name becomes a part of the interactive world.
One doesn’t play UO, one lives it.

MORGAN IRONFIST NEWS
– by Governor Kattasrophe, Ace Reporter
I was stealthing along in Shame towards the spawn ever so slowly…. I am not much of a fan of that place… but then, something caught my eye. It was the Governor of New Magincia, Morgan Ironfist! I was silent as a mouse, not making a peep, for he already had the Boss up and was killing it. I silently gasped at what he did next. He yelled at the top of his lungs, “WHAAHAAA! NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW!”
Oh, but surely that was a lie. I was there! I blinked rapidly and thought for a moment, as all the gold began to spawn. I began to wonder. Curiosity struck and I didn’t know what to do. Was he hiding the city treasury in Shame? *Gasp!*
This could be terrible. I watched a bit longer, too terrified to say anything. Within a moment, I took myself to Britain and said not a word.
[Note: To see proof of Morgan being in Shame, look on Stratics.]

ARCHITECT SERVICE
I wish to offer my knowledge in custom house design to anyone that wants help FREE OF CHARGE. You tell me what you’re looking for and I will build it on Test shard, then hand it over to you on the Test shard so YOU can COPY the design to Siege.
I will also help with deco’ing FOR FREE. But, you will have to buy the deco items… NOT necessarily from my shop.
